Montreal, Quebec, CA
BRUCE EDWARDS has worked in media for almost 30 years (although he’d hardly call it work) as a writer, producer, director, on-camera host, and, of course, voice artist.
Versatile, inventive and very easy to work with (just ask anyone!), he has recorded literally thousands of commercials, direct response ads, and promos; radio and television documentaries; corporate, industrial, whiteboard, and educational presentations; tutorials, explainers, e-learning and training programs; audiobooks, web videos, IVR prompts, and even on hold messaging.
His voice has been heard around the world and back again, but you don’t have to travel that far to reach him. As a Voices.com customer, you are just a click or call away via this website

VOICE STYLE AND TYPE
Bruce has the talent and expertise to provide a wide range of voice types and styles, from warm and homey to brash, brassy, and hard sell. He’s done everything from bright and breezy commercials to medical and technical presentations so complex that even he had no idea what he was talking about - but he made it work anyway!
He has enough experience to be able to adapt his voice to whatever is needed to bring any script to life. His performances have been described as natural, authentic, confident, conversational, trustworthy, sincere, relatable, as well as intimate, heartfelt, caring and calming, endearing, friendly, folksy, authoritative, charismatic, and classy.
Through his voice and versatility, he’s the guy next door, the old pal, the family doctor, the teacher, the student, the father, and the grandfather. He’s the British butler, the war-weary GI, the robot with a heart of gold, and the rootin’ tootin’ cowboy sidekick. He’s the young man in his 20’s and 30’s, the middle-ager in his 40’s and 50’s, and the senior retiree in his 60’s and beyond.
His voice style is reminiscent of a John Krasinski, a John Corbett, or Jon Hamm, but at times he’s been called upon to be as down-home as Sam Elliott, as caustic as Denis Leary, and as dignified as Donald Sutherland.
No wonder he’s been called a virtual voice-over chameleon! In fact, he’s the one that called himself that!
CUSTOMER SERVICE IS KEY
Whether it’s narration for whiteboard animation, corporate presentations, website, training, or explainer videos, e-learning or tutorials, educational or documentary programming, character voices for cartoons or games, even IVR prompts, on hold messaging or that annoying voice on your GPS, if the customer isn’t completely satisfied with the product or service, then Bruce won’t be able to build a solid and loyal clientele that keeps coming back. Communication is key and it’s not just about talking into the microphone. It’s about talking to the client, and listening, then taking his or her idea and bringing it to life. And it’s about doing all of this in a timely fashion and always meeting the deadline, even when it’s on the same day.

Voice work is more than just vocal chords and versatility. Hand in hand with technique is the technology that creates the high quality audio that customers have come to expect. Bruce records in an acoustically treated home studio using the same high-end AKG C414 XLS large-diaphragm condenser microphone found in many broadcast facilities and professional recording studios around the world. Bruce also uses Skype to connect with clients that want to direct the session from their location, wherever that might be.
As a freelance writer, Bruce has written literally hundreds of commercial scripts as well as dramatic, documentary, and public affairs programming for local, national, and international broadcast, as well as serving as script editor and researcher on various projects as well. He has also written project proposals, script treatments, corporate website material, and entertainment reviews.
The point here is that if you need a final polish on your script, or for that matter, someone to start from scratch on future projects, Bruce can provide that service as well.

To Whom It May Concern:
Our company, BVS Performance Systems, recently undertook an extremely large project, creating dozens of online training courses in a matter of about four months. The development of these courses involves many different facets, not the least of which is recording audio for each one. Being that the subject matter is financial services, the scripts can be rather technical in nature so the course narrator must be relatable and understandable while delivering somewhat dry information.
When looking for voice talent for this project, we auditioned over 120 narrators. Bruce Edwards was one of five that we ultimately hired. Bruce has been extremely easy and professional to work with. He has turned around the material given to him within the expected time frame and the quality of his work has been even higher than what we had originally expected. He has taken any notes that we have given to him without complaint and incorporated those adjustments into his work seamlessly.
Overall, Bruce has been a true professional and we look forward to a continued relationship with him in the future.

To Whom It May Concern,
Bruce did an excellent job with a long and demanding project. He was able to construct a plan with me towards adapting a productivity and technical manual to utilize images as well as draft interpretations of those images. He easily moved back and forth between prose passages and the technical presentations.
His voice and recordings are clear and clean. His inflection and use of voice is practiced and honed. The professional quality of recording, too, is very apparent to anyone who has ever been behind a microphone and worked with recording equipment.
I would readily work with him again.
